Wife and mom are my two most important titles. I’m a Dietitian by training and like to call myself a Battle Strategist because I firmly believe that we are all warriors! I want us to be empowered warriors with the good energy and health needed to fight our daily battles. We can do this Warrior Moms! We have an important job to do!

Defeat, time and time again!!! It’s so frustrating!! Another January come and gone. That New Year’s resolution tossed to the side. You feel guilty and ashamed that you have failed again. Girls, let me tell you something………
You can’t move forward until you identify what has been holding you back!! (Again) YOU CAN’T MOVE FORWARD UNTIL YOU IDENTIFY WHAT HAS BEEN HOLDING YOU BACK! This most certainly applies to your health. Every January, it’s the same. We all want a meal plan and the grocery list and we will start on Monday. But hasn’t that failed us before?? Time and time again? Twenty two years of experience and my own personal health journey has taught me the importance of identifying obstacles. To lose weight, gain energy and improve our health; we need to take the time to identify the barriers that have held us captive in the past. Once we have identified those obstacles, then we can put a strategy in place to work around those obstacles or overcome them completely! THIS my friends is the way to move forward!!
Aren’t you ready to do something different?? January is just a month. Being healthy is a lifestyle, not
a short term goal. Show yourself some grace, forgive yourself and determine to move forward. Need some help identifying the obstacles that have defeated you in the past? That’s what Im here for! I’m a Dietitian but this Warrior Mom calls herself a Battle Strategist!! I would love to help you overcome those obstacles! Let’s do this together!

Ugh, the pressure!! If it isn’t resolutions, it is the one word for the year trend. Now, don’t get me wrong, I like this. I really do and I think it is important! But coming up with that one word! Man! That can be problematic, right?!? So I started praying about it. God, what do you want to do with my life in 2019? How can I grow closer to you, Lord? I don’t want to go through the motions. I want real growth! I want Christ evidenced in me! What do I need to address in my life that is holding me back from being fully devoted to you, Lord?
Those were some of my prayers and I felt like He answered. But let me tell you, I didn’t like the word that I was “hearing!” I didn’t like it at all!! I mean, last year my word was DETERMINATION. I want an empowering word like that!! Instead, God in His infinite wisdom gave me the word REVEAL. What?!? Reveal?!?
The more I thought about it, the more it just made sense. Everyday, I help people deal with the junk that has been holding them back so that they can move forward on their health journey. Yet when it comes to my own body, mind and soul health journey; I would rather just move forward at a quick pace. Pushing away the difficult stuff, shoving it deep down inside and not wanting to face it or deal with it. This is my habit, this is my tendency, this is what I am used to doing. I mean I do this by default!!!
But I know. Deep down, I truly know that there are things I need to face. Past hurts, struggles and fears that I need to face. So I need God to reveal these things to me. I don’t want anything holding me back from being fully committed, fully devoted to my Lord and Savior. I don’t want to be a surface Christian and just go through the dang motions!!! I want more for my life and the life of my family. I know God has more for me! So for me to move forward, I need Him to reveal the things that have held me back.
I’m curious if you have a word for this year. What is it?

January already?? Really?? And all the pressure of making New Year’s resolutions?!? Please STOP!!! I’m just trying to recover from the holidays!! I learned something this holiday season. We did way too much. The saying “You can’t do it all” really rings true here. I tried. We did Christmas BIG at home in Texas and then loaded up the next day and headed to both Louisiana and Alabama. Too much! It’s hard having family out of state and still wanting to be home with my little family to celebrate. So this just means I need to figure out something different next year. Live and learn, right?!?
So yeah, I’m coming into January like a run down hot mess!! I’m showing myself some grace and allowing myself some time to recover and rest. And this is NOT easy!! I have all these expectations swirling around me. I’m a health coach for goodness sake!!! January I need to be ON IT!! But I’m not and that’s okay. The more I learn about health, the more I understand whole body, holistic health. Body, mind and soul it all goes together, baby!!! But knowing and doing are two different things. So I’m trying. I’m trying to let go of the expectations and give myself a moment. January is just a month! I’ll set some goals and plan for the year ahead. I’ll finalize my “word for the year.” But for right now, I need to recover and rest. Peace out ya’ll, this chica is going to take a nap!
